peeps

I've been seeing their ads for quite sometime now and i would like to give it a try. I just want to know more about this company. Do any pxers work at TrendMicro? what can you say about your company? how's the work environment there?

For Trend employees-> do you enjoy working there? Want to know about the perks, salary, bosses, peers? Anything worth sharing?

    What business is Trend Micro in?
  • coZeecoZee PEx Veteran ⭐⭐
    i think they develop anti virus software...
  • QuentinQuentin PEx Veteran ⭐⭐
    some of my friends went there after graduation (98), and i think they have a nice time there as virus engineers. some of them are still there i think, so it means there's a good bet that company's ok. they send onsites too.

    TrendMicro is the maker of PC-cillin, an anti-virus program. I believe most of you have heard of this anti-virus.

    They have very good Anti-Virus Engineers there.

    I remember when a classmate of mine went there for an panel interview, they asked him to do assembly programming on the spot (on the white board).

    Whew!

    dami ako ka-batch sa mapua na nagwo-work dyan ngayon. nung una nga natatawa ako pag nakikita ko sa email nila na "Mr. Kolokoy, virus doctor." di ko pa kasi alam noon na mga anti-virus software dini-develop sa kanila. mukhang ok naman sa trend kasi mukhang masasaya naman yung mga classmates ko.
  • I don't personally know anyone working in Trend Micro, though the impression that I got during our job fair was that the work there is really technical, as in hard core programming :lol:

    When I was looking for a job though, a friend suggested that I apply because he knew someone who accumulated PhP 10 million due to stock options after 3 years of working there. I didn't try to apply though, wasn't really in my line of interest.
  • Now i'll have first hand knowledge of how great or worst Trend Micro is :D

    ...That is if I passed all their battery exams during training or else TSUGI:lol:

    Tough company I'd say but it's worth the risk because the benefits are great! MARYOSEP! Nakapasa ka na nga sa exam at interview eto at meron na naman isang malaking balakid!

    Ipagdasal nyo naman ako mga kapatid!
  • hello...about Trend Micro, hmmm, may nakapagsabi sa akin na kapag nag-apply ka itatanong daw sa iyo kung mahilig ka sa gimiks or whatever, kasi you have to work overtime dun, parang di ka na daw makakalabas, yun para ka bang seminarian, naka-based ka lang dun. pero if you're thinking of the benefits and incentives, A-OK siya!!! SOBRA!!!!

    So think ka lang.....
  • I have a buddy who works for TrendMicro. I'm not particularly sure what his position is but I know he goes to plenty of company-sponsored business trips to the States.
    If you're looking at the pay, then I guess TrendMicro is IT!
  • anyone here from PLM batch 98?
  • angstangst PEx Veteran ⭐⭐
    I was offered a job there but I turned it down because another company offered me a higher salary. It's OK to work there. The tests are a bit hard, especially their 3-super-technical test. To prepare for their interview, I had to review. Imagine, during my first interview, the interview asked, "I have 2 workstations and 1 server. Configure a network for me." Fortunately, I passed the interview and was offered a job on the spot.
  • The company website is http://www.antivirus.com

    Their most popular product is PC-Cillin, but the company concentrates on coming up with antivirus solutions at the gateway level. That's why Trend holds 54% of the market in gateway antivirus software.

    I learned a lot, and still am. The pay? I'll get to that later....

    The test is a bit tough, although I've taken more difficult exams in other comapnies before. As for the interview, yes, you might have to code a program on the white board.

    The pay? I'll get to that later.....

    There's a bit of travel when you work in Trend. Most destinations are Taiwan, US, Japan, and Germany. The pay? I'll get to that later....

    Aside from the basic salary, the company offers stock options upon regularization. Because of that, some people here were able to buy their own house, a few new cars, etc.

    The pay? I'll get to that later...
    Hmm... nde, cge, wag na lang natin pag usapan ang sweldo ;)
  • AngryBrid!

    Woah... teka teka... Ano problema mo?

    Wala akong pinagmamayabang dito. Nagtatanong yung tao, binibigyan ko ng sagot. Akala mo ba ikinatutuwa ko ng todo ang kinalalagyan ko? Nagkakamali ka.

    Pinapakita ko lang kung gaano ako ka-frustrated dahil ang daming pinapagawa e maliit ang sweldo. Binigay ko naman both sides of the story - the good and the bad parts.

    "Who cares about the pay??" COME ON!! Like you don't?? That's the biggest heap of crap I've seen in PEx in a long time!! Sino namang tao na nasa tamang pag-iisip ang WALANG PAKIALAM SA SWELDO?!?! May asawa ka na ba? May anak ka na ba? O baka naman mayaman ka na kaya hindi importante sa iyo yun?

    Pressume all you want, man.

    gemyl:
    Good luck on your exam. Madali pakisamahan mga tao dito. Lahat dito nagtutulong-tulungan. As for work load, gaya nga ng sabi ko, marami-rami e. Usually hindi naco-compensate ang OT sa office. Pero give it a shot. Kanya-kanya lang namang trip yan e. Kung oks lang sa iyo ung ganoon, e di enjoy!
  • angrybird! thanks for the info!

    one last question: me growth ba dyan? i mean professionaly speaking, not with the position nor with the money. As in yun matutunan mo bukod dun sa alam mo na?

    Oo meron... I mean technically, madaming opportunity to learn new stuff, and there are lots of equipment you can practice on. And if you feel like becoming an MCSE or taking some other certification exam, Trend will shoulder the expense if you pass.

    [Woah... teka teka... Ano problema mo? ]

    -I dont have a problem, i just want to make you realize na iba yung dating ng mga nasulat mo, presko...

    [Wala akong pinagmamayabang dito. Nagtatanong yung tao, binibigyan ko ng sagot. Akala mo ba ikinatutuwa ko ng todo ang kinalalagyan ko? Nagkakamali ka.

    -wala kang nabanggit na maliit ang sahod at maraming ginagawa, dahil ang alam ko dyan sa inyo, bukod sa flexi yung time nyo, mataas magpasahod, okay ang benifits, no dresscodes, plus as you said so there's a bit of travel, right? Plus ang sabi mo pa nga "Aside from the basic salary, the company offers stock options upon regularization. Because of that, some people here were able to buy their own house, a few new cars, etc." Who will not love to be in your place? And your telling me na hindi ka natutuwa sa kinalalagyan mo? huh! you're one typical guy, ayaw masasabihan ng mayabang, di kaya ikaw yung kakilala ko dyan? i haven't talked to them for a long time now.

    ["Who cares about the pay??" COME ON!! Like you don't?? That's the biggest heap of crap I've seen in PEx in a long time!!

    -well ofcourse i do, pero not how much they pay you, but how exactly well paid ang mga employee ng company nyo, since that was the topic right? and i thought you were answering their questions and you never reveal how much they really pay their employee there, don't you think hindi ka na consistent nyan sa statement mo? and believe me nasa katinuan ako, at wala akong asawa lalo na anak, i bet you have, dalawa na, isang babae, isang lalake, right? at hindi ako mayaman, opinionated lang na tao....and by the way pare, girlash ako!
  • Ok. Ayokong maghanap ng kaaway. Senseless magbulyawan, para tayong ung mga estudyanteng nagtitirahan sa ibang forum niyan. Sorry kung presko ung dating.

    Gusto ko lang i-point na it's not as great as it looks on the outside. Hindi kita masisisi na sabihin yung mga sinabi mo kasi ganun nga talaga ang dating kapag hindi ikaw yung nasa loob ng kumpanya. Pero pag nasa loob na, may mga bagay na hindi na kanais-nais. Maraming nag-aalisan lalo na last week - hindi lang sa Pinas, pati sa ibang site.

    Wala akong anak. Pero may pinapa-aral akong kapatid. Kaya big deal sa akin yung "money-to-work ratio".

    On that note, peace tayo, sister!
